This hotel has some of the rudest and unpleasant staff that we have come across in South America. We were met by an extremely rude and aggressive women who yelled at us and told us the room was not ready. We would have left then and there but we were feeling tired after our trip from La Paz. When our... More

This was my favorite hotel/restaurant in this price range in Coroico. However, on my most recent visit, the service was exceptionally bad and they wanted to charge me for juice for breakfast even though the menu said it was included. The food is still good however and the rooms are nice but the staff seemed overwhelmed/unfriendly. A definite shift from... More

We stay at El caetal 2 nights to relax after climbing mountains in the Cordillera Real. With its great pool and an amazing view, this was a great choice. As it´s a 10min walk from Coroico center it is really quiet. We paid 100bolivianos for a double room with shared bathroom and the prestations where in line with what to... More

After reading all the reviews on here we were steeling ourselves for a terrible experience! Quite the opposite.... we had a lovely stay and would certainly recommend it... Yes it is a little walk into town but nothing too taxing. If you don't want to walk into town everything you need is at the hostel but a nice stroll into... More

The views from the hostal are fantastic, however the beds are ridiculously noisy every time you move, the pillows stink and when we went to the pool we were told by I think the owner that we couldn't go in the water after we put sun screen on! A big walk into town as well, although it's only 10 bolivianos... More

The place is nicely situated at the edge of town and has stunning views. The food in the restaurant is pretty good to. However, a bit more enthusiasm and effort of the owner wouldn't harm. We arrived in the evening and almost had to beg for some boiling water and a spoon. We've experienced much better hospitality in Bolivia.

This resort just SUCKS, we are currently in it and it is the very worse we ve seen since we started our trip in Bolivia and Peru. The attendant was cold as ice (i didnt know clients were disturbing in a hotel). The bed is not confortable at all (matras must be at least 20yr old). Bathroom is not clean... More

The situation, looking over the valley would compensate for a lot, but I found the people very pleasant, incuding the French owner. He wasn't gushing but was forthcoming with information and assistance and only wanted my first name when making a resevration that morning by phone. The garden is beautiful and the pool is a bonus (a few dead insects... More
